:whiteflag I have a 1993 EB Bronco 351

I want to install 6" Rough Country kit, but should I do it with blocks or rear spring?

I am new on all this, so I need professional help.

Does somebody has pictures with rear blocks or rear sprig leaf, just to compare?

I have the option to install quad shocks. Shoul I do it? What will be the difference?

Thanks for your help
ED

if you got money for springs, do it. For one, thats one less suspension componet, that prolly has some wear, tear and miles on it.

You have 4-6 inches of only blocks between your whole truck and your axle. I will try to find a picture a guy posted up of the block that shifted. IMO blocks are alright if they are 2 inches, but when you start puttin long blocks, and only long u bolts holding it, theres room for error, and if that error happens, nothing good will come from it:popc1:

There's a huge lift info thread stickied in the 80-96 section, go read that and it will answer any question you could possibly have.

i have a rc 6" lift that installed last august. three weeks ago, i broke the center pin in my leaf pack (running blocks, cuz i was broke at the time).
the break caused my rear end to shift backward and do a little body damage, and in taking it all apart i discovered that the other centerpin sheared at the same time.
so...
if you have the loot, either go with springs or a shackle flip.
i fixed the centerpins and then ordered a shackle flip, which should be arriving anyday now.

i have wheeled the snot out of the blocks and they have been fine for a few exceptions. if i were redoing the whole thing over again i would go with lift springs, or go with a shackle flip. skip the headaches and maybe body damage and forget about the blocks.

my 1.5cts.

I have a buddy that lost a block while wheeling, he had to drive the truck out in order to fix it, and he ended up trashing the driveshaft and did a whole lot of body damage. Go with springs if you have the cash.
